His interest in music was evident after he asked for a saxophone at the age of three, and he has been playing ever since. Seeney picked up guitar at the age of 13 after hearing Green Day's 'American Idiot' album for the first time. The strong, punk rock roots left a strong mark on Jay. Seeney attended Macarthur Anglican High School and graduated Year 12 in 2009.
He studies at the University of New South Wales in Sydney as part of the Bachelor of Music program, studying jazz guitar.
Forever Road was formed by Jay Seeney and Jake Gilroy in 2010 after meeting at a local event, the Camden Show, when Jay was 18. They were introduced by a mutual friend and began jamming. Their music has been described as bold and edgy sound, pushing the boundaries of country rock. They recorded their first album, Glass Promise, in May 2010.
The pair has racked up a number of achievements in the short space of two years since forming. The two performed as featured artists at the Australian Music Week, Darling Harbour, their first single ‘Grandpa’ is regularly featured on the Country Music Channel which is aired to over 200,000 homes and debuted at #16 on 98.9’s Country Countdown as well as also attending the exclusive APRA awards. Having completed two very successful tours of Tamworth playing at many of Tamworth’s best known venues such as, ‘The Coyote Ugly Bar’, the ‘Coca Cola Stage’, and ‘Peel St Stage’, Forever Road is currently writing tracks for a new album and continue to perform relentlessly throughout NSW and Queensland.
Seeney currently holds the position of lead guitarist for the Peter McWhirter band. Jay has been performing with Peter McWhirter since 2011, playing many prestigious country festivals throughout Australia including, Gympie Music Muster and CMC Rocks the Hunter. The band has toured extensively throughout New South Wales supporting Jasmine Rae. Peter McWhirter recently won the award for CMC's New Oz Artist of the Year.
